Over the last week, the most popular news story and late night joke fodder has been Michael Wolff’s tell-all book “Fire and Fury” about the Trump White House’s first year. On Wednesday’s Full Frontal, Samantha Bee said the controversial book has only distracted from Trump agenda, in particular, recent immigration decisions.
“Fire and Fury is basically the book-length version of a Trump tweet,” Bee said. “Only vaguely truth-adjacent but incredibly distracting, which is too bad. Because while everyone on cable news was fixated on Michael Wolff’s shoddy ninth generation Xerox copy of Game Change, there were actual things happening. Like news and stuff or whatever, I don’t know, mostly to brown people.”
“2018 is going to be a really important year, guys, and we need to keep our eye on the ball,” Bee said. “We can’t count on pundits to help. They’re going to keep getting distracted by the nonsense of the day, like fruitless speculation about Trump’s mental health.”
